Many thanks to Frank Baker and Brian Woods for this photo of a young Daniel Craig aboard a Hoylake RNLI boat in 1978 (aged about 10 I reckon). Crew member Geoff Hanson gives Andrew Bloster, Danny Craig & Paul Smith a closer look at the lifeboat!
Daniel Craig promoted his first James Bond film by sailing down The Thames in a speedboat as you can see below (image source). Daniel Craig is now a supporter of the RNLI.
You’ll have no doubt seen the impressive Supacat tractor and trailer parked on the lifeboat station approach? The tractor is being temporarily parked there while preparation and training for a new Shannon Class lifeboat is undertaken. A new lifeboat is scheduled to arrive at Hoylake in early December. Also, some construction work to reroute the mains water supply to the liefeboat station is nearing completion.
